Built in 1958, refurbished in 2013

William Joseph McGlothlin was Furman president from 1919 to 1933. McGlothlin was interested in moving the campus out of town so it could grow however received hostility. Hence, he purchased lots of land and the campus grew where it was originally located. In 1924, Furman achieved accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools for the first time. There was a major expansion of athletics and the women's college become a part of Furman for financial reasons. President McGlothlin died after a car crash while on his way to the Baptist convention.
